    He still seems rather bitter about the whole thing. He was part of the best sci-fi show of the past decade, and he's still angry that it wasn't his version of Galactica that was produced and successful.

    I didn't get that at all. He would rather his character go out a hero (who wouldn't), but bitter? No way.

    I remember Hatch campaigning for a new Galatica series YEARS before this current one. I think he even went so far as spending some of his own money to film teaser/promo footage of Galatica to get people interested. At the time Glenn Larson said that it would NEVER happen. Basically thought the idea was stupid and wouldn't give Hatch the time of day.

    Funny how things turned out.

    That's my take also.

    He talks about how he'd like the show (and his character) to go on for "10 more seasons" because he's enjoyed being a part of it so much, but he knows that's just not to be. The show itself only has a few episodes left.

    He said his only regret was that the writers chose not to let his character go out in a more "heroic" fashion.
